Buyers are analyzers, negotiators and deal-makers. They research, evaluate and buy products of companies to either resell to customers or integrate them in their supply chain for their everyday operations.

PSW aims to provide concrete technological answers to those purchasing, R&D and innovation departments and to search for innovative technological solutions adapted to their industrial project.

In the last edition of the Paris Space Week, around 100 Key account from major space companies, agencies and institution were part of this event and 29% of them were Director R&D and R&T, 23% were project manager, and 20% were purchasing director.

Any company that provides goods and/or services for space industry as one of the contributors to the development process on the way to the ultimate customer is welcomed. A supplier could produce and deliver partially assembled components, custom parts etc. Paris Space Week is a one to one space event dedicated to space applications, launch vehicles, satellites and space related technologies that help the suppliers meet the right buyer.

PSW had the opportunity to welcome future partners and help their development in new projects with key accounts.

You can come across many definitions of the term, however we are following the definition of ESA: A company at the Paris Space Week event is considered as a start-up if and only if the company has been created less than 5 years ago and has a real technological and innovative project. If you are a company that has a prototype and is already backed by clients and investors, you are welcomed at the show. You are looking to get known in the industry and are looking for your big first contract.

If you just created your company and only have theories not backed by real tests, it is preferable for you to come back to us in the near future.

Research Laboratories
Space Research Laboratories are major actors in the space industry. The objectives are to explore space physics and research efforts are geared entirely to people’s needs: security, communication, energy and space industry. As a result, the work undertaken by researchers has a significant impact on people’s lives.
